I had an awesome salad at the Machine Shed in Urbandale. The Fried Chicken Salad was loaded with fresh lettuce greens, cherry tomatoes, hard boiled egg, bacon, sliced fried chicken strips, and cheese.
Recently remodeled, the decor is your typical farmers theme with waiters and waitresses in overalls and ball caps. The Machine Shed is known for large portions and meals like mom or grandma would make. They have large tables to seat your family gathering and event. Everything is made from scratch and delicious. Be prepared to take home leftovers or that afternoon nap.
I usually don't talk about service but I am having a hard-time containing myself. We had lunch service that lasted almost 2 hours. Granted there were six in our party. We waited an epic amount of time for our drink order then delivery. Food delivery was slow- however the ketchup and empty drinks were not done in until I got the check. No one checked on us for almost 20 minutes. I am guessing our waitress was having a bad day as we never really saw her. So I will try again.
